Sign up by calling Mary Lynn Stuart at 843-3833. __________________________ Kansas responds: Legislative leaders form committee on security Topeka Legislative leaders have formed a special committee to study security issues across the state. Their action Friday was a response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center. However, the leaders carefully struck references to terrorism from their directions to the committee. The committee is supposed to examine security at the Statehouse and other state buildings, but also for power plants and water supplies. It also is charged with reviewing the state’s oversight of the transportation of hazardous materials and computer security issues. In addition, the committee is to examine how to balance security and civil liberties. __________________________ Crime: Police investigating alleged rape at hotel Lawrence Police are investigating a possible rape and sexual battery that occurred sometime Wednesday at the Lawrence Holidome, 200 McDonald Drive. The two female victims, ages 19 and 20, are Holidome employees, Sgt. Mike Pattrick said, and both said they were acquainted with the suspect. The 19-year-old said she was raped, and the 20-year-old said she was a victim of sexual battery, Pattrick said. Police have not made an arrest, but information will be turned over to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office for review, Pattrick said. No information about the suspect was released. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.309 at Miller Mart, 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.
